Do you know opposites, Yes or No? On or Off. Asleep no Awake. Opposites are a piece of cake . . . right? Not so fast! Time for a quick double take. Who knows what’s BIG unless there is SMALL? Does SHORT mean a thing except next to TALL? What is ABOVE and what is BELOW? The answer depends on who wants to know!

Writer Susan Hood and illustrator Jay Fleck lead us on a topsy-turvy fun-house journey into the concept of opposites and takes it to the next level — with detours into terms of relativity and points of view (and a dollop of yin and yang for good measure).  Readers learn that what is opposite often depends on your perspective and to consider all sides.
